Zoe Saldana makes promoting a new film look so good. In her latest magazine cover for Cosmopolitan for Latinas, the Guardians of the Galaxy actress rocks a blue knitted Julien MacDonald dress and then shows of her pre-baby bump figure in an intergalactic-inspired metallic and mesh dress. Saldana took the opportunity to share some sexy advice and why she's loving her age.
"At 35, you make better choices in men or partners, divorce people and situations that are not right for you, and learn to say 'no' with a smile," she said.
Saldana has yet to confirm her pregnancy with husband Marco Perego, but it's obvious that the private star has a bun in the oven. In the interview, she opened up about hoping to teach her future child multiple languages.
"Of course [our children] will speak the languages that we speak; my sisters and I grew up learning French and speaking English and Spanish, and because of that, we're able to understand Italian and Portuguese. But I'm going to have to make a conscious effort to speak Spanish to my children, because I speak Spanglish," she said.
As for some love advice, Saldana said she prefers men who can stand beside their woman instead of placing her on a pedestal.
"A man who has a natural respect for women — I don't want a man who worships me: Stay away from those. Worshipping doesn't count as really seeing me. I like men who work with women, are challenged by women, learn from women."
And if you're hoping to spice up your sex life — it is Cosmo after all — then she's got a few tips for you, too.
"To be uninhibited," Saldana said on the best quality for a good sex life. "I'm not talking about bringing in a third person or watching porn all night: That's what leads people to believe they are amazing in bed when they're the worst ever. Pornography is not sex education – it's the opposite! Don't allow insecurities to close you off. Be creative."
